Asian influence

I helped a sweet friend (hi Jill!) with some bridal shower invitations recently. Her sister really likes Asian, so this is what we came up with.

We stamped the Rubbernecker Bamboo Background with versamark and embossed with black detail embossing powder. We really wanted to use these lanterns but didn't want to cover up all the beautiful bamboo background, so using versamark ink again, we stamped them onto vellum and heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder. This way the beautiful bamboo background shows through. We cut with Spellbinders Labels Two and attached with black brads. We then mounted the whole thing onto black. I think they turned out great! What do you think?

Here is what I used:
Rubbernecker Bamboo Background SKU:250-10
Rubbernecker Chinese Lanterns SKU:1080 SO
Spellbinders Labels Two
Gold Detail embossing powder
Embossing powder Black Superfine by Ranger
brads: unknown
Cardstock: Basic Black, Real Red, Vellum

Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!
